UVI to Host First Virtual New Student Convocation

The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) will host its first Virtual Fall 2020 convocation for new and transfer students from both the Albert A. Sheen and St. Thomas Campuses. The joint ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13, via Zoom. 

“Our theme “All Aboard on Your Journey to Success” is exactly the spirit that our student Convocation will send to students,” said Hedda Finch-Simpson, dean of students on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix. “Their future is not on hold due to COVID-19 and they will be able to build the foundations of new and bright careers at UVI.”  Finch-Simpson continued, “We have an all-inclusive approach to accommodate all of our students, ensuring that they are equipped and prepared as they embark on academic quest.”  

“Just as commencement is the official stamp of completion, convocation serves as the official stamp of approval for students to commence their academic journey here at UVI,” said Finch-Simpson.
